VIENNA, Va., June 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Yeske Buie is pleased to announce that it has been named to the Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers list, as of June 18, 2015. The list recognizes top independent RIA firms from across the U.S.
This is the second annual FT 300 list, produced independently by the FT in collaboration with Ignites Research, a subsidiary of the FT that provides business intelligence on the investment management industry. More than 2,000 elite RIA firms were invited to apply for consideration, based on their assets under management (AUM). The 630 RIA firms that applied were then graded according to six criteria: AUM; AUM growth rate; years in existence; advanced industry credentials; online accessibility; and compliance records.
The "average" FT 300 firm has been in existence for 23 years and manages $2.6 billion in assets. The 300 top RIAs hail from 34 states and Washington, D.C., and, on average, saw their total AUM rise by 18% in 2014.
The FT 300 is one in a series of rankings of top advisers that the FT developed in partnership with Ignites Research: the FT 401 (DC retirement plan advisers); the FT 400 (financial advisers from traditional broker-dealer firms); and the FT 100 (women financial advisers). Elissa was named to the inaugural FT Top 100 Women Financial Advisers list in November, 2014. In compiling this list, FT set out to identify the 100 best women financial advisers in the U.S. The guiding principle was to assess advisers from the perspective of current and prospective investors.
